Labor Law - Management

Varnum has continued to meet and/or exceed our expectations throughout the years with what sometimes seems to be limitless knowledge presented in the most timely and professional manner possible. Varnum leadership maintains an unsurpassed level of integrity which seems to somehow trickle down through the entire organization, setting the bar high for other firms to model.

Banking and Finance Law

Varnum is very professional and handles our business with integrity. Their ability to understand our issues and develop solutions is excellent. They are very pragmatic and timely with answers and comments. I am often called on by other firms for our corporate work, and I turn down such offers. That is the best form of flattery I can offer the Varnum Law firm.

Varnum has been very attentive and willing to adjust fees. They did some direct work with our internal legal on building template of loan documents to distribute to approve outside counsel. Most all of our participations and "club" deals have been done by this firm.

Environmental Law

The representation from Varnum has been professional, prompt and fair. The firm's approach to my company's legal issues has been carried out with the correct balance of financial stewardship with environmental responsibility taken into consideration. They have offered other services in addition to services upon initial hire, which have added to my organization's environmental knowledge base much value to the price we have paid Varnum for their services.
